Well, the Big Bash 2008 is in the record books. 318 alumni signed the reunion book. Down a little from last year (356) but still the second biggest reunion on record. The Class of 1968 carried the day with a record 80 attendees.

This tree (with Yandes / Detchon Center in the background) may be the new logo for the weekend. Our area experienced 80 MPH straight line winds on Friday evening that almost drove 420 of my best friends into the locker room at the Allen Center!

Over the span of 24 hours, a lot of Central Indiana received up to 10 inches of rain. We could have used canoes for the campus tours.

In the end, everyone had a good time, I think. I certainly didn’t hear anyone of our reunion attendees complain.

From Carl Kelley, Perry Lewis, and Paul Honan with the Class of 1943 to Kip Chase’s son Jack “programmed” for the Class of 2030, the smiles said it all.

I’m beat, dead tired, and I didn’t do any of the work! I can’t imagine how worn out the folks in Bon Apetit and Campus Services are after the weekend.

I’ll try to post some more photos and stories in the coming days.

Thanks to all who were here.
